Breast far apart no cleavage  and after weight loss loss of upper pole fullness.can gaining weight reverse this?any treatment age 23

None recommended: Trying to gain weight to get full breasts is a bad idea. You are likely to get fat without fuller breasts. If you must, you may consider getting a breast implant. I am not recommending it, jut informing you of the option. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Does Biotin cause weight gain or weight loss at 5,000 MCG twice a day?

Neither: 5000 mcg sounds like a huge dose but it is just 5 mg and is very safe and non-toxic. Biotin plays an important role in metabolism so some claim it can help lose weight, but I know of no evidence it causes weight gain or loss (it might help if one is deficient but deficiency is rare). It may help lower blood sugar a bit. See http://altmedicine.about.com/cs/herbsvitaminsa1/a/Biotin.htm ...Read more

HCGdiet looks unsafe: The HCG diet has a person eating 500 calories a day for more than a month. That's just one big slice of pizza a day. A 4-month old baby eats 500 calories a day.

By law, the drops can't contain any hcg, so it's like adding expensive water to your meals.
